"El Dorado" (1966)


Late in his career director Howard Hawks essentially remade the same western 3 times with John Wayne...the amazing "Rio Bravo", the pretty good "El Dorado", and the so-so "Rio Lobo". If you love westerns (and I do) then you can't really go wrong with The Duke teaming up with old friend Robert Mitchum to save a rancher's acreage from nasty land baron Ed Asner (yes, Mr. Grant!) Also, dig the groovy score by Nelson Riddle...sounds like "Batman" gone country and western.
